Joshua Buatsi and Craig Richards went to battle on Saturday (May 21) evening in a key matchup in the light-heavyweight division.

Both Buatsi and Richards are trying to move up the rankings in the hectic light-heavyweight division. 'Just Business' came into the fight with a lot of momentum. Sitting at 15-0 in his professional career, he was fresh off a knockout victory over Ričards BolotΕ†iks last August.

'Spider', on the other hand, is also looking to get into title contention at 175 pounds. Last May, Richards was dominated by WBA (Super) Light-Heavyweight Champion Dmitry Bivol in the biggest test of his career. However, he rebounded with a TKO win over Marek Matyja in October 2021.

The rest of the card featured other notable names. The co-main event spot featured heavyweights Alen Babic and Adam Balski going head-to-head. Also slated was Cheavon Clarke's return against Pawel Martyniuk, and Chantelle Cameron vs. Victoria Noelia Bustos.
